This is a most attractive mother of pearl pin wheel/pin cushion. Each side has cut-outs of the pearl which show the deep pink silk covering of the cushion, which highlights an engraved flower on each side. The silk covers the space between the two discs and has a loop extension for hanging either from the hand or possibly even from a chatelaine. This piece is in very good condition for age and would be a lovely addition to a Victorian sewing box or amongst a collection of needlework tools. Diameter of pin wheel 1.4 ins (3.5cm). Weight 8 grams.
